TMA BID FOR HIT EXTENSION CENTER GRANT MOVES FORWARD

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services notified us that our grant application to help physicians become meaningful users of electronic health records (EHRs) has passed its first hurdle. Funded through the economic stimulus bill that passed this spring, the grants pay for organizations to set up and run health information technology regional extension centers (HITRECs). If we are successful, our HITREC will help Texas physicians “select, successfully implement, and meaningfully use certified EHR technology to improve the quality and value of health care.”
